i brew up resources to help you stress less and love momming more

Becoming a mama can be stressful! My goal is to help you stress less and maximize your precious family (and personal) time so you can avoid sweating the small stuff and simply love being “Mom”. 

I scrape together whatever time I can find (like during 3 a.m. serenades from this little nugget through the baby monitor) to write for you, and it makes me so happy! Thank you so much for stopping by.

what's here for you?

Everything you need to get you to, through, and beyond the fourth trimester.

I am right here in the trenches with you, mama. I feel your growing pains, your struggles, your lack of “me time” and your overwhelming sense of “What did I get myself into?” (But the giggles, smiles and drool kisses make it all worth it, don’t they?!)

Together, we will make it through this transition into motherhood. I’m giving you all of my tips, tricks, checklists and research-based information to make your transition to motherhood smoother.

"Kim is, first of all, so encouraging and open to listening when you are having a tough time. She is so well researched and has great resources for all phases of life and parts of being a mom, wife and friend!"
Cat
Mom of One Little Girl, Age 5 Months

"I am a mother of 2 young girls, ages 2 years old and a newborn. I am always impressed with Kimberly's attention to detail, tenacity, and overall love and care for her little one. Kimberly is an excellent mother who will go to the moon and back for anything her daughter needs. I enjoy our chats about motherhood and the welcoming ability to bounce around ideas and strategies of parenthood with her."

beans and bravery a practical mama's roadmap to

coming soon!

Motherhood doesn't come with a manual, but how about a roadmap to start your journey off on the right track?

Nearly a year ago, I started out to create a single resource (A Practical Mama's Roadmap to Motherhood) that would cover essential topics a first time mama ought to know. These topics included everything from how to budget and prepare your partnership, to why a birth plan is a great idea, to what to know about the first days and weeks with a new baby and how to care for yourself at the same time. I started writing and kept writing, and that single resource quickly blossomed into 5 (and counting) roadmaps bursting with research-based information, tips, tricks, and valuable information I know will make your life so much easier. (My research group mamas have told me so!) Sign up below to get notified when these instant-access, printable guides are available for purchase. The first 10 mamas to sign up will receive a 50% discount!
